Living in Toronto we get introduced to so many different delicious cuisines that it is nearly impossible to decide what is our favourite. Yet when it's a cold day in the city there is nothing that will warm you up quite like getting some hot pot.
There is something about building your own pot of meat, veggies or noodles. It's amazing when you can customize your food to exactly your taste. Whether it be for a group or just for yourself, a warm meal just knows exactly what we need.
